Justice Department Frowning on DIRECTV and Echostar Merger Could Mean Setback For DSS HDTV CNN and other news agencies are reporting that staff in the U.S. Justice Department are not in favor of the pending merger of the two top digital satellite TV manufacturers – GM’s DIRECTV and Echostar’s Dish Network. The reason for the lack of support for the merger is reportedly that there are only two competitors in the DSS market and the deal will leave people who can’t get cable or terrestrial TV with only one satellite TV option. Echostar and GM argue that cable TV companies own over 80 percent of the pay TV market and merging is the best way for them to compete.

Thus they will sell the video portion of their high line products to Crystal View, the company that is picking up, in part, where Vidikron left off.

There is no question that the Fox TV program "American Idol" is the latest smash hit. Featuring a talent-show format with live performances and "The Weakest Link"-style rude judging, the show captured the attention of advertisers, along with millions of TV viewers, despite the worst advertising recession in modern media history. But the show’s success is emblematic of larger problems in the consolidated entertainment business.
